Trouble at All Bar Nun last night?

By johnboy - 21 May 2007 36

An unsubstantiated tip just though about trouble at All Bar Nun last night:

“Lost of people yelling and several cop cars, paddy wagon etc. groups of people huddled and some running…. does anyone know the deal? It was about 9.00 maybe. Just thought I’d ask.”

Anyone know anything more?

UPDATED: The much improved police media release system appears to have some answers:

ACT Policing have arrested a 29-year-old man for attempted murder after an incident in O’Connor last night (May 20).

Police will allege that the Dunlop man deliberately struck the 28-year-old victim with his vehicle, after an altercation at an O’Connor licensed premises.

The offender has fled the scene in the company of another male. Both men were located by police at a City nightclub a short time later.

The alleged offender was arrested and will face the ACT Magistrates Court today, charged with attempted murder, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, resist police and possess knife without reasonable excuse.

Police would urge anyone who may have witnessed the incident and have not yet spoken to investigators to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Attempted murder?

UPDATED: Loadedog suggests that an education campaign is needed to make sure than polo shirt wearing lads know they’re meant to be going to Mooseheads and not messing up Canberra’s more pleasant bars where they become violently confused by the long words used in conversation in those places.

Nope, not any more. All bar nun actually stole their entrance for the new beer garden.

O’Connor: Is there a gay steam bath still upstairs?

The guy looked pretty calm in court today – was wearing one of those white bodysuit hoody things that they give to offenders whose clothes aren’t suitable for court. Looked normal otherwise (ie non-boonerish) All Bar has changed…it was packed on Sunday and ever since it’s expanded its no longer a quiet place to have a drink. I’m not surprised there’s now a bit of biffo there.

to score that many charges he must have tried to murder an off duty plod!

They *never* were!

we’d just make rude remarks about them in the pod.

I believe it all started with the RiotACT rugby podcast recording.

Noisy patrons had been asked to shut the f. up.

O’connor is fine, i live there!
Stupid drunk men @ All Bar Nun will never change.

Don’t expect anything: it saves disappointment later. 🙂

O’Connor – that place has really gone to the dogs since they closed MacPherson Court!

We won’t expect jail time.

I look forward to meeting this guy in a months time at All Bar Nun to share the tale of how he got off on weekend detention and who he plans to run down next if they look at him funny.

So it wasn’t Amber out celebrating her slap on the wrist from Cahill then?

I’m guessing it may have something to do with this lovely chap (courtesy of the ABC).

666 news just reported that someone has been charged with attempted murder following an altercation at an inner Canberra night spot last night.

I believe someone’s face had an intimate meeting with the sharp end of a busted beer glass.
